Back in 2002, Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor took part in Party at the Palace to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee. The 50th anniversary celebration began with May playing God Save The Queen on his electric guitar, on top of Buckingham Palace’s roof. Later that evening, Queen performed Radio Ga Ga, We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions and Bohemian Rhapsody, accompanied by the cast of the We Will Rock You musical.
While later on in the evening May and Taylor joined the likes of Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart, Cliff Richard and Ozzy Osbourne for a rendition go All You Need Is Love.
But having not taken part in the Diamond Jubilee concert in 2012, would Queen and Adam Lambert be up for performing at the upcoming Platinum Jubilee in 2022, marking 70 years of Elizabeth II on the throne?
Express.co.uk asked May himself who replied: “Oh yeah, well that’s a thought.
“If they invite us, yeah, I don’t see why not!”
Queen and Adam Lambert were set to tour the UK and Europe this summer before the pandemic saw those concerts postponed to 2021.
Despite next year’s dates being locked in, May still feels it’s all “very unclear” how and if the tour will go ahead even then.
He told us: “First of all, I have to get fit and I’m doing well, but I need to do better. Probably another six months of rehab to get right back up to full strength.”
May had some serious health issues this year, including having suffered a heart attack, but is now on the mend.
On Queen and Adam Lambert’s 2021 tour, May said: “And then what is going on out there next May? I don’t think anybody knows for sure.”
The rock legend said the band hope they can fulfil all the commitments that have been carried over to next year.
He commented: “It’s incredible to me that half a million people are hanging on to their tickets hoping that this will happen, same as we are.
“So I’m hoping we can do all those European dates, come back and do our 10 nights at the O2; it’ll all be packed out and everything will be fabulous.”
